    Hi anim3mina!

    I'm not exactly sure of your question, but I think it has something to do with side pots. You're asking why K5 wins 58 chips, correct?

    I'd guess this pot started off multiway and the guy with 66 was all in with a very short stack, so he could only win a small pot. If another player in the hand folded, then K5 would win the side pot, which would consist of any chips put in the pot after the shorty was all in.

        I see, thank you! umbup: however, here's another situation I found confusing so again, why 54 wins 337 chips?

          In this one, both players end up with the same final hand, because their kickers don't play, so it's a chopped pot. In a chopped pot, both players should win half of the pot, but you can't cut a chip in half, so one guy wins an extra chip.

          By "same final hand", I mean they both have 444JT. When deciding who wins at showdown, you make the best possible 5-card hand using just the board cards, one hole card and 4 board cards, or both hole cards and 3 community cards. The 5 and the 7 are useless here, because the J and T on the board are both better cards. The winning hand for both players is trip 4s with a jack kicker, and a 10 for the second kicker.
